10 inches of snow today. people are dead in the path from missouri to new jersey. dylan's forecast is in a moment. two new claims against president trump. the president fighting back overnight against published reports that he tried to conceal details of his meetings with russian president vladimir putin and another that the fbi open an investigation shortly after he became president to determine if he was working for the russians. a live report. plus chuck todd in a moment. and, later, a sunday sitdown with oscar winner natalie portman on reflecting our celebrity culture in her stunning new movie and her own experience with fame over 25 years in show business, including being a movie star while a student at harvard. >> i think i was really lucky to have been there before social media, actually facebook was invented when afs senii was a s mark zuckerberg at harvard so i
6:02 am
was able to go about my business and not have it like documented. >> a sunday sit-down with nat portman and more later in the show. president trump is pushing back overnight over two eye opening reports. one the fbi led a counterintelligence investigation determine if the president was working for the russians and another he attempted to conceal details about his meetings with russian leader vladimir putin. nbc white house correspondent kelly o'donnell has more plus the latest on the government shutdown in its 23rd day. >> reporter: good morning. the president is reacting with frustration and ridicule aimed at former fbi official and two newspapers. it is about russia and while very often we talk about aspects that deal with the investigation and the trump campaign or campaign associates, this time,
6:03 am
it is directly about allegations that deal with the president and his own conduct. >> are you now or have you ever worked for russia, mr. president? >> reporter: president trump dialed into fox news saturday night to defend himself against that explosive charge. >> reporter: the president did not answer directly but did attack a pair of stunning reports. first, "the new york times" writing, the fbi ran a counterintelligence investigation on the president, suspicious that he may have been working on behalf of russia defense american interests. and from "the washington post," allegations about the president's face time with
6:04 am
vladimir putin. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> "the post" reports that former officials claim that the president was unusually secr secretive. >> i'm not keeping anything under wraps. i couldn't care less. >> reporter: president said he handled meetings with putin just like other leaders. but i meet with putin and they make a big deal. anybody could have listened to that meeting. that meeting is up for grabs. >> reporter: white house press secretary of state sanders called "the washington post" outrageously inaccurate. saturday, house intelligence chairman democrat schiff said the following. and this morning, the shutdown meets a snow day here in washington. president trump also saying that
6:05 am
he likes the symbolism of the fact he has remained at the white house while members of congress have gone home each weekend. he says they must act responsibly. democrats continue to press that a border wall is ineffective and too expensive. speaker pelosi saying when the president acts, the house will respond. >> easy for me to say here in a warm studio but it is a beautiful image behind you of the snowy white house. thanks, kelly. while the washington political fight over the government shutdown drags down in a battle between the rich and the powerful, it is working people across the country who are bearing the brunt. government employees and contractors like janitors and cooks are among those spending the weekend without a paycheck. many of them working for free. nbc matt bradley has their story. >> reporter: this new york food pantry is welcoming some unexpected visitors. furloughed federal employees. >> for me the biggest thing was individuals that came in who said that, you know, i can't believe that i'm here. i used to volunteer. >> reporter: but you don't have to be employed by the government
6:06 am
to feel the effects of the shutdown. beyond the 800,000 federal workers who aren't getting paid, more than 4 million contractors are also at risk. the longest shutdown in u.s. history is also disrupting industries far from capitol hill. an airport terminal in miami forced to close after tsa agents stayed home. some fda food inspections have stopped. and in wisconsin, the shutdown was a rude welcome home for mallory and her husband after their honeymoon. she suffers from diabetes and now pneumonia and had to cut back on her insulin shots. >> i love being a civil servant. this happens, it's a stab in the back. >> she is thinking of selling her job and may sell her belongings to make end's meet. a painful ending what was supposed to be a happily ever after. matt bradley, nbc news.
6:07 am
>> chuck todd is nbc political director and the moderator of "meet the press." good morning. i want to talk about the shutdown in a moment. let's begin with the two reports. one in "the new york times" and one in "the washington post," even in the era of donald trump, jaw dropping. put those two together for me, chuck. what is most stunning to you if you take those separately and together even. "the new york times" saying the president was investigated by the fbi on the possibility that he was working for the russians against the national security of the united states of america. they didn't determine he was but the fact they initiated that tells you what? >> it tells you this. i think the fact is that we have -- i think partially this is the president's ability to frame the mueller investigation the way he wants to see it framed if nthat it's some sort of attempt to get him, right? it's been this perception he is somehow at the center of all of it. but in many ways, it's more have been a discovery.
6:08 am
it's russia that is at the center of everything, right? and so through that prism, the fbi -- if you put yourself in the position of the fbi, for a decades, you've been investigating russian interference in domestic politics. then you're trying to figure out, wait a minute. why did the president of the united states want to end an investigation into russia? that is the suspicious. when the mueller took over the fbi's investigation, is this now part of that? the other part of it is the obstruction isn't separate. obstructing what was favor to the russian government. think about it. our own fbi and our own sitting president. >> the white house denies both reports. the president in kelly's piece calling them insulting and suggesting that the fbi launched this a as vindication because james comey, the fbi director,
6:09 am
had been fire. the shutdown in day 23 and in america's record. the president says no wall, no deal. democrats say, well, no wall. where does that leave us, chuck? >> doesn't leave us anywhere near a solution here. congress left town for the weekend. i think that was politically a questionable decision. that said, on tuesday, perhaps them facing constituents face-to-face and hearing the stories firsthand make them want to crack. you brought up the abc poll and 2-1 blame trump. inside that poll, willie, a pleurality of democrats don't want democrats leaders compromised and a majority of republicans don't want to see the president to compromise. if that is what the leadership is seeing, right? that basically their own political bases want them to stick to their guns, we are going to be here a while. >> the majority is still against the wall in that poll but 42% of americans support the idea of the wall so see how that goes.
6:10 am
>> 42% the president's job rating and support of the wall all of that is starting to converge into one. >> same group of people. real quick, chuck. feels like 2020 stepped into another gear. the race to be the democratic nominee. we have these two in the race and the mayor of san antonio. elizabeth warren in new hampshire and harris on a book tour this week and questions around joe biden and bernie sanders and michael bloomberg. the three b's i guess you could sum that up. >> if you're not ready to get in now, don't wait. you may not be able to get in. look. i think elizabeth warren really has sped up the process here. i think, yes, we call her exploring but she filed her papers. she got in. she is an active candidate. she just hasn't done the big announcement speech yet. i think that is speeding up everybody else. and i think we are going to have a weekly announcement now for
6:11 am
the next probably six to eight weeks. >> a lot to talk about today and we will watch. tune in to watch "meet the press" and chuck and his guests senator ted cruz and tim kaine. dozens of car accidents are across the messed because of the snowstorm. people are affected today from missouri to new jersey. good news about wisconsin teenager jayme closs discovered alive on thursday nearly three months after abducted and her parents were killed. on saturday jayme's aunt posted a facebook page that jayme had a good night's sleep and the family will support her through the long road ahead. the 21-year-old suspect is set to appear in court tomorrow. authorities say he saw jayme's parents as, quote, a barrier to abducting her. the los angeles rams and the
